Can the Traxxas Spartan go in saltwater?

Say hello to power! We all know by now that when Traxxas is in the picture, whether we’re talking RC cars or RC boats, there are a few things we’ve come to expect. Naturally, power, speed, and really cool technology are always in the mix. 

Add some eye-catching color to this combination, and you are looking at the Traxxas Spartan.

What is the Traxxas Spartan?

The Traxxas Spartan is a brushless RC muscle boat, that is making waves (literally) in the world of RC boats. This gorgeous RC boat can get to an amazing 50mph+, which makes it one of the most powerful and fastest RC boats on the market. 

In addition to awesome speed, the Traxxas Spartan features a sleek 36” deep-V hull for stable high-speed performance, water-cooled, waterproof VXL-6s Marine speed control, and Velineon 540XL high-output brushless motor with high flow water-cooling jacket. 

These features are some reasons the Traxxas Spartan is special. 

Why Traxxas Spartan is the best for you

Let’s talk detail, shall we? The Extreme Velineon brushless horsepower in this RC boat gives you power, muscle, and absolute Traxxas reliability. In order to help you maintain your batteries, it comes equipped with a VXL-6s Marine electronic speed control, with on-board low voltage detection. 

In order for it to really tap in on speed, the extra voltage and current maximize the potential of the Velineon 540XL motor. Its cooldown technology for protecting the motor is also elite. Cooling water is routed through the speed control case. It is then sent into a unique sealed motor jacket that allows cooling water to flow directly against the motor for maximum possible heat transfer. 

What makes Traxxas Spartan so special?

The Traxxas Spartan is equipped with the world’s most advanced ready-to-race radio system - The Traxxas TQi radio system. This system takes precision, comfort, power, and reliability to a whole new level. 

The TQi radio system comes with a full complement of tuning features, including long-range, high-output, and 2.4GHz signal. This RC doesn’t require an external antenna, which really speaks to the advanced technology that went into designing this system. 

Want to know what’s even more exciting? The Traxxas Link Wireless Module (optional) can be linked to your iPad or iPhone to become a powerful tuning tool for your Spartan. This is a game-changer in optimizing your radio system for ultimate vehicle control and performance. 

All you need to know about salt water and your Traxxas boat

It’s quite tempting to want to take your Traxxas Spartan to test on every single waterbody around, including saltwater bodies. However, we do not recommend you make waves on salt water with your Traxxas boat. 

Saltwater is highly corrosive, which could cause damage to your boat. Damage caused by corrosion is not covered under the Traxxas warranty. If you still want to show off your cool boat and your boat riding skills on saltwater, you must ensure you flush it out with fresh water and lubricate the drive system after each use. 

Traxxas is always taking their RC models to the next level, and the Traxxas Spartan is no different. If you’re all about power, speed, and amazing technology, this boat is for you!
